Here at Heartworks we keep quite busy, buzzing around the kitchen, carrying pots of oil around, weighing out exact measurements of shea butter, sweet almond oil, coconut oil, jojoba and kukui nut oils and blending them together with various aromas all coming from essential oils such as lavender, ylang ylang, clove bud, to mention but a few, adding in foodstuffs such as oatmeal, cornmeal, poppy seeds etc for effect. All these ingredients coming together make up our soaps and shampoo bars which when they have gelled together for over 24 hours get cut with our very special cutting machine (courtesy of that man of mine, Mauricio) then after a month period in our poor little hall and anywhere else we can find to put them, they get labelled and packed away until some lucky person out there reaps the benefit of their therapeutic qualities, their sensuous aroma, their lovely lather, and their long lasting endurance.
I can’t help thinking about a fudge sweet with a flavour of orange with real orange peel. Mouths waters until I realise we’re talking about a bar of soap here and you can’t actually eat it. This bar has an ylang ylang fragrance and has honey and kilbeggan oatmeal added. A rough (but not too rough) bar for exfoliating with the exotic scent from essential oils
The soap dish was designed and made by Mauricio from Heartworks. The perfect size at 10cm x 6 cm for any hand basin
